I am second in a 12 team Yahoo standard 5x5 Roto. The first place team offered me this trade: Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw for my CC/Cueto/Bourn
This costs me in steals and pitching, but helps in RBI, Runs, HRs. I think it is too much, any counter-offers you would make?

He originally offered: Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw for my CC/Cueto/Bourn I counterd with: Beltran/Fowler/Kershaw for my CC/Helickson/Bourn He countered with Beltran/Lester/Kershaw for my CC/Bumgartner/Bourn I am thinking this is moving the wrong direction. Should I recounter with Beltran/Kershaw for CC/Bourn? any other ideas? He obviously wants to try to catch up on SBs. I think I can make up for Bourn by getting Gardner. IF Beltran comes back healthy I would be great on offense. In terms of pitching I think CC and Kershaw are about a push and I have Bauer waiting for a call up.

That was going to be my suggestion, actually. I like getting Kershaw, as he's the best player in the deal, so I'd be tempted even if the offer stays as is. But swapping out either C.C. or Cueto for Hellickson is great for you.
By the way, how is Panda starting in your outfield? He's never played a game in the OF.
